The Celtic hotshot is under contract until the summer of 2022 but the Scottish giants are looking to extend his deal.

Speaking in March, Neil Lennon said: “I’d love to give him new deal – I’d give him a five-year deal tomorrow.

“If there’s something in the offing then brilliant.

“Odsonne’s improving all the time. He’s a talismanic player for us – he’s been absolutely magnificent this season.

“But I think there’s more to come from him. I hope he’s doing that here with us.

“I think there’s improvement in him – he can get better. But he’s already a highly talented player.”

Lyon are also interested in Edouard amid concerns former Celtic striker Moussa Dembele could leave.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has advised Haaland to remain in the Bundesliga if he is keen to continue his development.

“He has huge potential, but still has time. I don’t want to put any pressure on him with my statements,” the Poland international said.

“If he works hard, he can become a better player and eventually reach the top level. Therefore it might be good for him if he would stay in the Bundesliga longer before taking the next step.”
